Next Friday, March 25th, local non-profit, Street Soccer USA will unveil a new “street soccer” field at The Yard at Mission Rock. Following a ribbon cutting, there will be tournament and open play, as well as an opportunity to meet Street Soccer staff and learn about their social mission.
The Street Soccer USA Park event is part of the The Yard at Mission Rock’s Spring Launch event featuring food, drink, music, games, and prizes. There will be a featured match between the front office of San Francisco City Football Club and the San Francisco Deltas operations team.
The new soccer field is adjacent to the newly revamped Anchor Steam beer Garden and the Yard is welcoming new food vendors, Belcampo Meat Company, serving burgers and hotdogs, and Crêperie Saint Germain, providing crepes, salads, sandwiches, paninis, soups, and juices.
Street Soccer USA Park is a social enterprise using soccer as youth development tool to achieve outcomes in education and employment for the least served across the United States and right here in the Bay Area. Street Soccer USA runs soccer leagues and competitions to support their mission.
The Yard at Mission Rock is open year round, seven days a week in the San Francisco Giants’ Parking Lot A (at the corner of 3rd St. and Terry Francois Blvd). The pop-up village is constructed out of 13 repurposed shipping containers, which now house local food and drink establishments, serves as a community gathering spots and public open space.
Games will be played in the Street Soccer USA 4v4 style, with the tournaments featuring 20-minute matches played in round robin, followed by a semi-final and final. Play at the event is free, though onsite donations to SSUSA from participating players will be accepted.
